In previous efforts, it was suggested that proper blood cell freezing and storage is necessary in longitudinal studies with reduced between tests error, for specimen sharing between laboratories and for convenient scheduling of assays. A particular laboratory continues to develop and upgrade programs for the computerized laboratory notebook (CLN) wherein experimental protocols, data collection from laboratory equipment, database storage, data analysis and graphic presentations are computer automated in support of the battery of leukocyte tests (BLT). The article describes the design and use of a computer program, CRYOVIAL, for databased management of frozen cell repositories.
